Public safety organizations include emergency management agencies, law enforcement agencies, fire departments, rescue squads, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

The public safety issues a city might grapple with include narcotic use, trespassing, burglary, harassment, juvenile delinquency, unauthorized living, noise, littering, inappropriate social behavior, inebriation, and other quality of life issues. Generally organizations are involved in the prevention of and protection from events that could endanger the safety of the general public from significant danger, injury, or property damage, such as crimes or disasters (natural or man-made).
